I tried just the following configurations getting good results (sw3d runs smoothly):
Microsoft Windows 95/98/ME/2000 with IE 5.5 and Microsoft JVM
Microsoft Windows 95/98/ME/2000 with IE 5.5 and Sun JVM v1.4.2_08 (earlier versions make the applet slow)
Microsoft Windows XP with IE 6.0 and Sun JVM v1.4.2_08
Microsoft Windows XP with IE 6.0 and Sun JVM v1.5
Microsoft Windows XP with Firefox 1.0.4 and Sun JVM v1.4.2 (courtesy of simay)
Microsoft Windows XP SP2 with Firefox 1.0.4 and Sun Java JVM 1.5.0 (courtesy of StefW)
I don't know how the applet works with different Platforms and/or different
Browsers and/or different JVMs so, if you tried successfully sw3d with other
configurations, please contact
me so I'll add your configuration here. Thank you
3. When I register a sw3d account, am I automatically registered to the forum?
No! When you register a sw3d's account you are not automatically registered to
the forum. If you want to take part to the sw3d forum discussions you'll have
to register also to the forum. You are obviously free to choose use your nickname
as you like nevertheless I advise you to use in the forum the same nickname you
used to register the sw3d's account.
5. How can I add in the forum a link to a model of mine?
You have just to type the following row:
It is important to say that using sw3d it is possible to choose names with blank
spaces inside so, in this case, you'll have to substitute the blank spaces with
the type "~" (ALT+126). For example to link the model "Robotic Spider" in the
Jeckyll's account, you'll have to write:
The "heavy load" option is automatically deactivated when the amount of data in
a single account exceeds a fixed limit of bytes. This adjustment is necessary
since the server that hosts sw3d.net allows just a limited amount of traffic per
week. If this amount of traffic is exceeded the sw3d.net site could have some
connection problem. Moreover, in case of server problems, The "heavy load" option
will be stopped for all the accounts until the problems will be solved.
11. I have problems in saving models. The applet freezes when I try to save my
models and I always lose my work. How can I solve the problem?
It seems that this problem is due to a conflict of different JVMs simultaneously
installed on a computer. The solution is very simple. It is enough to turn "off"
via Browser all the JVMs with the only exception of the JVM that works with sw3d,
and then restart the computer.
